Crowley said he wrote The Book of the Law on 8, 9 and 10 April 1904, between the hours of noon and 1:00 pm, in the flat where he and his new wife were staying for their honeymoon, which he described as being near the Boulak Museum in a fashionable European quarter of Cairo, let by the firm Congdon & Co. The apartment was on the ground floor, and the “temple” was the drawing room.
Crowley described the encounter in detail in The Equinox of the Gods, saying that as he sat at his desk in Cairo, the voice of Aiwass came from over his left shoulder in the furthest corner of the room. This voice is described as passionate and hurried, and was “of deep timbre, musical and expressive, its tones solemn, voluptuous, tender, fierce or aught else as suited the moods of the message. Not bass—perhaps a rich tenor or baritone.” Further, the voice was devoid of “native or foreign accent”.
Crowley also got a “strong impression” of the speaker’s general appearance. Aiwass had a body composed of “fine matter,” which had a gauze-like transparency. Further, he “seemed to be a tall, dark man in his thirties, well-knit, active and strong, with the face of a savage king, and eyes veiled lest their gaze should destroy what they saw. The dress was not Arab; it suggested Assyria or Persia, but very vaguely.”
Despite initially writing that it was an “excellent example of automatic writing,” Crowley later insisted that it was not just automatic writing (though the writing included aspects of this, since when Crowley tried to stop writing he was compelled to continue. The writing also recorded Crowley’s own thoughts). Rather he said that the experience was exactly like an actual voice speaking to him. This resulted in a few transcription errors, about which the scribe had to later inquire.

In the letters of the words AZOTH and INRI written kabalistically; and in the
monogram of Christ as embroidered on the Labarum, which the Kabalist Postel
interprets by the word ROTA, whence the adepts have formed their Taro or Tarot,
by the repetition of the first letter, thus indicating the circle, and suggesting that
the word is read backwards. All magical science is comprised in the knowledge of
this secret. To know it and have the courage to use it is human omnipotence; to
reveal it to a profane person is to lose it; to reveal it even to a disciple is to abdicate in favour of that disciple, who, henceforward, possesses the right of life and
death over his master – I am speaking from the magical standpoint – and will certainly slay him for fear of dying himself.
